This photo was taken on the day we got Sarah April 9, 2007

Last night I put Sarah to bed by my self. I know that sounds strange, but it's the very first time it's happened in almost 3 months. The few times Juergen has been gone, I have let Sarah sleep with Philip and Thomas. This time I made her sleep in her own bed. She cried, but only for a minute. She was pretty tired, and fell asleep very quickly. I'm going to try to put her to bed every other night. She is very much dependent on routine. I think having Juergen put her to bed, and get her up in the mornings is more a habit now then anything else. Any way, it was a major step for me to get her to bed alone! To be honest, I was afraid to do it. I hate to see her cry tears of fear. I can handle temper tantrums...but fear gets me! I don't think she is afraid of me any more. Thank God for this!
